And tell jh70mac from above what he's won Connie !

Ok Ed, well jh70mac will need his spurs and pistolas because he'll be spending a fun filled all expenses prepaid week at Casa de Rattlesnake Ranch in beautiful Palo Duro Canyon where all contestants in the weekly rattlesnake round-up will each receive a custom monogrammed anti-venom kit just for competing in the weekly provisions procurring festivities smileys

Sorry Z, no prizes available for runners up but maybe you could sweet talk madnez into sharing one of his plethora of "white chics" he constantly claims to be bedding down with. Oh and, in case you do, be sure to take a good heavy duty wet suit with ya .... if ya know what I mean. Better safe than infected winking

Always amazes me how many folks out there are either in or at least aware of the finishing trades and the relevent equipment. You in the biz too jh70mac ?

excuse for appearing ignorant but PMC die cutter still does not explain what it is

Don't get your panties in such a wad Z !!

PMC is the manufacturer & it is known as a "high pile" die cutter because of the type of the very specialized tall-knife cutting dies it uses. It's used for cutting a 3-5" tall stack of material (paper/plastic/label material) into specific shapes with a single stroke of the machine. A very common use for these is in doing 100s of shaped labels or credit cards with a single machine stroke in like a second or so winking

BTW, these retail new for like $60k, this one sold rebuilt for $32k and a shop that does a lot of different types of work with one of these can easily invest more than the cost of the machine in cutting dies. An "average" cutting die will run $1-2K and the more exotic the shape of the product, the higher the dies become.

Just making the cutting dies for these machines itself is highly specialized and there are relatively few shops in all of North American that even make 'em. Making the cutting dies is a very artful/metalurgical process and quite involved requiring a pretty extensive knowledge of metals and a high degree of craftsmanship in insuring they will last a while, which at the prices they go for even re-worked is certainly important to the customer smileys

Strangely, I think I have actually used one of these many years ago to cut out shapes in fabric piled about 30 thick. I had no idea what it was called though. Thanks Kim!

well, something similar but not the same. It was in Britain so probably not made in the US.
